AP/AFP – It’s a remarkable feat for a studio to emulate a former designer’s styles – with originality.
This was the case at the display: From shirt hems quirkily cut in zigzag patterns, to 3-D paper plane appliques on suits and otherworldly, elongated silhouettes.
A finely tailored jacket with trompe l’oeil prints provided one of the many touches of old-school luxury.
They toed a careful line between the playful styles associated with the house since 2018 and the fine luxury tailoring seen during the tenure of predecessor Kim Jones.
The display’s strength was owed to its many feats of design. One case in point was the waist on a black double-breasted jacket that had been pulled in to resemble a V on its side. Its very silhouette evoked the house monogram.
